Book Review: Don't Think Of a Blue Ball by Malti Bhojwani

On the jacket:


Don't Think of a Blue Ball is as light or as deep as you want it to be, depending on how Plugged In you are while reading it. It aims to give you all you need to truly live the life you want and be joyful as you pursue your dreams and desires. Plug In and do the effective, tried-and-tested, exercises derived from Malti Bhojwani's extensive study and hours of coaching her clients. This book includes scientific explanations where needed, wisdom from timeless philosophers and authors, teachings from the scriptures together with the author's own personal poignant experiences to beautifully illustrate how you too can live a life you desire instead of one of default. For the first time, an easy to read book that entwines humor, simple analogies and a firm voice in twelve chapters to show you how to make lasting changes in all areas of your life by making empowering decisions that will instantly help you experience joyous living. You will not only learn how to take action towards your desired life by following steps like in many other self-help books, but also how to change the way you talk to yourself, enabling you to feel, walk and dream in a state that will magnesite everything you desire even while you sleep. Don't Think of o Blue Ball will help you become aware of who you are being twenty-four hours a day and how to create a successful life by being a manifesting body that radiates joy and gratitude. 

As a life Coach she aims to serve, not to fix or to help. Malti Bhojwani is the founder of Multi Coaching International, a professional certified life Coach with the International Coach Federation (ICF), NIP practitioner (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and an author. She coaches using her empathetic enquiry that leads her clients to personal empowerment, fulfilled goals and consistent success. Being a life-long learner, she is also mastering Ontological Coaching with Newfield Network to hone her skills, as she still considers herself only a 'white-belter' in the field of personal transformation. Born in Singapore in May 1971, she lived in Jakarta for many years, though she spent most of her adult life in Sydney, Australia where her grown-up daughter Drishti lives. Her first published work, Thankfulness Appreciation Gratitude My Journal has gone into several reprints.

Review:

I had received Don't Think of a Blue Ball as a winning copy at a Goodreads' contest earlier this year. Quite a surprise, and a fantastic read. An effortless read, Bhojwani's book reads as if she is sitting in front of the reader and talking. 

A lot of exercises, the think pink exercises being the best, Bhojwani doesn't talk like she is a know-it-all but as someone who knows the problems one faces and tries to handguide into helping solve them. One thing that struck me was, that the book can be interpreted in multiple ways. It's like a blank board, mould it to your needs and it will help you.

I am personally not a fan on self-help books, however, the treatment Bhojwani has given to the content, makes it a pleasure read. Informative, helpful and a good read.

Rating: ****/5
